Bryant Eslava is currently 19 years old, and has achieved a tremendous amount as a photographer. His Tumblr has been featured in the spotlight due to his careful eye for creating portraits and photographing fashion. Bryant currently focuses on what is known as street-style fashion photography—an art form made popular by Scott Schuman (the Sartorialist) and Bill Cunningham of the New York Times.

Bryant was kind enough to take some time out of his schedule to chat with us about his success, and to share tips with our readers on how they can gain success too.

Bryant's photo was shot by David Urbanke.

People go scuba diving for many reasons. Some divers are interested in the natural beauty of coral reefs, and the animals that call this environment home. Wreck divers are interested in man-made objects that have ended up underwater by disaster. Ships and airplanes sink because of bad maintenance, fire, weather, collisions and war. Once sunk, the wreck becomes a time capsule. When diving to explore wrecks, the experience is enhanced if you know its history. When swimming through one of these underwater museums, one can't help but imagine what happened during the sinking. If your objective is to create images, knowing the wrecks history will help.

The first question non-divers usually ask is, “Have you ever seen a shark?” If you answer yes, they want to know if you were scared. Well, for most divers, seeing this majestic animal is a thrill. To be able to see dozens at one time is an experience most divers dream of. One does not have to travel far to realize this dream. In the Bahamas, on New Providence Island in the city of Nassau, you can swim with dozens of gray reef sharks. Nassau is less than a three-hour flight from New York City. The island is merely 178 miles from Miami, Florida. Nassau is known for sandy white beaches, calm blue water, casinos, resorts and gift shops. There is enough to do to keep any tourist happy. Vacationers come to this island by cruise ship, airplane and private boat, to relax and party. But if you want adventure, you should venture beneath the Bahamian waters to see the numerous reefs, walls and shipwrecks teeming with marine life.

While a photographer's vision comes first, there are many creatives that prefer to just use one camera and one lens. The reason for this varies greatly: maybe the combo helps them get most of their work done, or maybe they love the way the two work together. We recently talked to various photographers asking them what their go-to lens and camera are.

And the answers range across the entire spectrum.

Think about this for a second: What is the one item in your camera bag that doesn't take up a ton of space, but that you'd be nowhere without? We all have them. They are little essentials that vary greatly—whether filters, painkillers, etc. We asked a couple of photographers what they have, with some interesting results.

A camera's LCD screen can be quite misleading when viewing your images. Often, when you import your images onto your computer they don't look anything like what you originally shot (that is, if you were working with RAW files). In order to get better color out of your images, you'll need to follow a couple of steps. And once you've reached the end, it will be like night and day.

We talked to four of the leading industry professionals to talk about how they get better color. Here are their tips from start to finish:

We’d never been to this ghost town before, and it was a long haul to get there, but we finally arrived. It was one of those cold, overcast days in Montana where sitting by a fire was a better option than trying to make a good click. Our son Jake had been to Elkhorn State Park before, but it was new to us, which always makes the photographic adventure that much more exciting. But the light was flat, to say the least—simply no magic to it. We walked up the hill to the old Fraternity Hall. Not that the light falling on it was any better, but perhaps we could find a ghost. We ventured in and went upstairs to find no ghosts, but a soft shaft of light, making two very ordinary folding chairs look anything but ordinary. You couldn’t have had a more common scene lit by a more uncommon light.
